Re: Alligator and /or Caution
CPW is always right on, and you can never go wrong with the
4-20s'69 ARK pick
But IMHO, I prefer (SORRY NO HYPERLINK) the Avalon 1-25-69
or the Stanley 2-7-69. The Stanley's setlist, and performance, is to die for. The China Cat Jam in the middle is what makes it for me, but I digest....
Other famous Alligators include:
1-22-68 Eagles Ball room, Seattle
12-12-69 Thelma Theatre, LA (another personal favorite, the disc I labeled "Pigpens Showcase")
1-16- 70 Springer's Inn, Portland OR
4-29-71 Fillmore East
The "Caution" jam actually came from a development of "Mystic Eyes" performed by the band "THEM"
Pigpen just added different words to the motif.
Exemplary Cautions include:
2-14-68 (I think you are familiar)
12-12-69 Thelma, LA (a coinsidence? I think not!)
2-14-70 (I think you are familiar)
4-14-72 Tivoli, Copenhagen (who hasnt wet themselves over this one?)
I humbly submit some ELEVENS that might strike your fancy:
Also, some Phil&Friends do some really exceptional Elevens (as long as Molo is behind the kit)
The DVD "Live at the Warfield" release is not THE best but does contain some fabulous music.
And it does contain a Saint Stephen>The Eleven>Caution segment that you might like.
